ASTOUNDING FACTS IN TAXATION The Horold recently contained an cdi- ! torial regarding the report of the Illinois bureau of labor statistic?, which set forth some very important tacts, bearing upon the subjoct of taxation, which were worthy the attention of the entire nation. The report referrej to is being circulated and read veiy extensively through Illi nois and other states, and is elic ting more comment than almost any official document that has appeared for several years. We have since received a complete copy of the document kindly sent us by Mr. James Maicolm, secretary of the state board of arbitration at Springfield, Hi. The rojiort contains a vast amount of food for reflection and discussion. The bureau of labor statistics was estab lished in 187(1 and it made its lirst report in 18dl. Other reports have followed biennially, but none ever contained so much information or took such strong giouud in favor of tax reform on radical lines. Considerable space is devoted to showing the condition of tbe wage- wot it ers: their average compensation, cost of living,etc.. but tho striking feature oi the document and that which has stirred up a large hornet's nest is the expose oi ex isting taxation methods in Illinois, and especially in Chicago. These revelations are made, the report say"', in the interest of tbe laboring class; the tax methods being termed "liberty-destroying" in their character and effeots. We learn from private sources that Republicans in Illinois are very much worried over the report, non-partisan though it is, and are eager to break the force of its revelations, some of them even g<oing so far as to demand the abo lition of the bureau for daring to publish the names of wealthy tax- dodgers find perjurers. On the other band, Demo cratio papers all over the country have been giving favorable notices ot it, anil calling attention to the startling facts and statistics, believing that the trutn should be told, let it bit where it may and hurt whom ie will. The laws of Illinois require the assess ment of all taxable prjperty at its full Value: but it appears that, in Chicago particularly, it is a common thing to as ■ess tbe property of certain favored classes at less than 25 per cent of its real value. This is especially the case with reference to land, which :n many instan ces is assessad at merely nominal figures, tnougli held by the owners at very hig'J prices. Another striking feature of the report it tbe numerous instances mentioned to sbow how personal property escapes taxa tion in Chicago ami Cook county. Foi instance, in the wnole county of Cook, arith mnre than a million anil a half < r population, there are only 337 firs, and burgiat proof safes, the average value Ot which is only $20.60. Hut in Ma lison county, there are 218 such safes, of an uveraze value of $40.32, and in Morgan count*-, which bas 02 safes, the average value is 593.30. Fig.ires showing similar disparities in numerous other count'os are given. Then again, the returns of assessors reveal a frightful scarcity of moneys ar.d credits in Cook county. It appears that Chicago, the great commer cial metropolis of the wnole western country, carries on its operations, so far as bankers and brokers are conci rned, with less thao fifty thousand dollars "on band and in transit,'' and of checks and other cash memoranda ami funds subject to draft, 'ibis amstint is exceeded by six times in the county of Peer a, while in Macon county, which returns the lowest amount of all, except Cook, it is $.000 more man Cook. These are only a few of the incongruities and iniquities o' taxation methods which are exposed. Probably nothing in tle cray of uss-s moot ataiiDtics ever so aereiely tested tbe crelulity of a too credulous people than the figures pur porting to show the assessed valuation of all property ia Cbicigu in 1894. In IStiJ the assessed valuation of that city was $200,920,000. Since that year the popula tion of Chicago increased from 250,000 to at least 1.500,000 in 1894. And yet official figures civs an assessed valuation of prop erly In 1894 at $247,425,412. In other words, BOOOrdfng to the assessors, the value of property in the city is now $19, --(91,558 less than it etas twenty-live years ago, when the population was only 360, --000. Chicago boasts of its rapid growth, Itut if its increase of population shall continue to oe attended with such a fear ful decline in property values, the time is not lar distant when Chicago can uoast of b?ing not only tbe most populous but the most poverty-striekm city in tbe United States. Of course the only reasonable explana tion of such an anomaly is found in the corruption ami absolute rottenness of the Illinois taxation system, supplemented by the pliancy, ignorance and oithonos ty of the average assessor. The report of the bureau is replete wi'li facts, figures and suggestions that constitute the most astounding revelation ciiccrning taxa tion Iniquities that has been made any where in this tax-burdened country And he it said, to tbe credit of there port, it proposes a renteUy for the evils exposed; a remedy plain, simple, practi- J cable aud just. In one respect tbe taxation laws of California are less objectionable than those of Illinois. In California real j estate and improvements are assessed , separately, while in niinois a piecr of ground and whatever improvements it may have are assessed as one and the same thing. Thus, as a rule, neither the owner nor the) public, nor in fact anybody besides the j assessor himself, knows the assessrd valuation of either class of property* In bi> Held notes the assessor ha- two col umns of figures, one showing the assess ed valuation of the land and the other that of the improvements, while in an otner column appsars the asgregate amount. It is only tbe total that go2s on the assessor's bouks, to be seen and known by tho public. The assessor's Held notes are his private property; out in some way the Illinois bureau oi statistics managed to get bold of numerous held notes, from which they obtained com parative statements Tha'. ought to make many owners of very valuable properly blush to the roots of their bair and call upon the rocks and the mountains to cover them. The report gives the figures on seventy different properties in tbe business center of Chicago, which show that the assessment valuations of the buildings average 12 per cent of their true value, while the assessment valua tions of the sites average only 7 per cc.it of their true value. In the words of the report: Land owning is tavoreil at tbe expense of building.'' Where the site is owned by one party and the improve ments by another the landlord is favored and the improver is compelled to pay all the more tax becauso "the other fellow" is, in a negative way, rewarded for his uselessness. The gist of the bureau s plan for re forming the rotten taxation system now prevailing in Illinois is its recommenda tion to change the constitution, "so as to permit esch political division of the state to adopt its own systsm of raising all taxes within its jurisdiction." We tuny add tbat a similar change is as much needed in California as in Illinois. WHAT SPAIN IS PREPARING FOR Di-patcbes from Mndrid assert that the Spanish government is strengthening its naval forces in anticipation of the recog nition of the Cuban insurgents as bellig erents by some of tbe governments of the American continent, it is said that Spain would rogard such recognition as a viola tion of international law and thetefore an unfriendly act. If Spain actually takes that view of recognition, and the unusual naval preparations are connected there with, it would seem that she intends to resent the alleged infraction of the inter national code in a warlike manner. But it is altogether improbable that she takes any such unwarranted view. The recog nition of t!:e bellieerency of a rebellious province or people is in no wiso a demon stration of unirien dliness to the govern ment rebelled against, or a violation of the laws of nations, so long as the people thus recognized measure up to the status of the belligerent as set forth in common ly accepted international law, and that in effect requires the establishment and successful maintenance against all agres sion of regular form of government for a reasonable length of time. When tbey have done this they are sovereign, and justly entitled to the rißhts of sovereign ty. That is tho cold proposition ot inter national law. The latter takes no cogni zance of the merits of the controversy be tween rebels nnd the government rebelled utninst. It respects only the self-sustain ing ability. It is more likely, howevsr, that in stead of contemplating hostile demonstra tions against governments according the rank of belligerency to Insurgents, that Spain is adding to her navul force for en tirely a different purpose, and that will be to take advantage of a certain right that w.ll accrue to ber when any country recognizes the Cubans—the right to stop '.he vessels carrying the flag of the coun try according belligerent rignts to the in surgents, and search them for contraband of war. If this country s'iould recognize tbe Cubans every Amsrican merchant vessel on the bigu seas would be subject to detention and inspection by Spanish cruisers, am 1 whatever tbey might be carrying to the rebels could be lawfully sei/.jd and carried away by the Spanish commander. Tbe according of belliger ent rights to the insurgents, therefore, means an equal bestowal of the same on their oppressors. This fact is not gener ally known, else the knowledge would operate to dampen the entbesiasm of some of those people who are impulsively and loudly calling for the immediate rec ognition by this government of the Cuban rebels. For while such recognition would enable the Cubans to buy munitions and equipments of war in the United States with impunity, and we could sell the same freely without violating our treaty obligations with Spain, something we cannot do now, there would be but little hops of the consignments ever retching the Cubans. A cordon of Spanish cruisers would encircle the jgem vf the Antilles and subject every merchantman Hying the Stars an 1 Stripes to tbe annoyance, and we say humiliation, of a rig orous search. This right of search ia well settled in international law and the United States has stoutly continded for and exercised the right; the most notable instance of i:s exercise by this government being tbe detention and search by Commodore Wilkes of the British mail steamer Trent, LOS ANGELES HEBALD: SATURDAY" MOR:NTN"€r, OCTOBER 26. 1895. on which occasion the Confederate com misioners, Slidell and Majon, were ar rested. The latter was of course unwar ranted, anu the I'ritod States govern ment d ieavowed the net ami apologized to Great llritain for the arrests, the gentle men being merely passengers, but tbe right to search the vessel for contraband of war was vigorously defended by Secre tary Seward and virtually admitted by England, The supremo court of Ihe United States nas also clea'ly a firmed this tight. It is an open question worthy of serious consideration before definite action whether the gain to the struggling Cubans of recognition by tnis country, would offset advantages that would ac crue to Spain as the result of such recog nition. The inconvenience to and interruption of American commerce on the ocean, as a consequence of Spain's vigilance, is also an important element for consideration. LIEUTENANT-UOVERNOR MILLARD The demise of Lieutenant-Governor Millard on the threshold of exalted pub lic station is peculiarly sad. The awful ness of death is mitigated when it comes to one who has placed a tew score of years behind him. and tilled, or at least enjoyed the opportunity of tilling, the measure of his possibilities. Mat when it bears from the sphere of earthly exist ence one in the prime of life with the p.-omise of the honor and usefjlness of public preferment just breaking, it would seem as though the designs of nature were in defeat and the world cheated. That the late lieutenant-governor and those who in the loyalty of love were proud with a laudable pride of his official advancement, must have exper. ienced a keen sense of disappointment that the sufferings of disease all ould make impossible the enjoyment of his office, is not to be doubted. His death at so un timely a season is doubly sorrowful to bis family ami hi? friends. Mr. Millard was a gentleman who was ever interested in the welfare and progress of his city nnd state, and in a modest and unassuming way had con tributed much of his time and effort to Los Angeles. Although not a man of brilliant attainments, he possessed what are of more consequence, substantial and sincere traits oi character that rendered him useful as a citizen and would have undoubtedly made him valuable as an officer of the state.

Sympathetic words • came from all quarters to sustain her in this great hour of her bereavement. Sho has borne up nobly under the terrible strain she has been subjected to,although ber health is shattered. The little competence that Mr. Millar-1 had saved was all spent in paying the extraordinary expense his long illness cau.ied. Fortunately, though, he carried an in surance on his life of $15,000, which will leave the widow in easy circumstances. The insurance was divided as tallows: Northwestern Life of Milwaukee, $5000; Bankers' Alliance of this city, ifoOOj; Maooabtes, $2000: North western Masonic Aid of Chicago. .fMOOO. Friends have seen to it that tbe premiums on all these pol icies were paid up during tlie lieutenant governor s illness, and as all the com panies are reliable tbe widow will re ceive tbe full $l. r i,ooo. THE SUCCESSION. The intelligence received here last evening that Governor Budd had ap Mixed Rough every day buits for business men. Don't forget that our suits at $10.00, $12.00, $i?. 00 are not the poor sort, for we don't handle that kind. Ours fit and have a style —you can't get around. Try one of ours on and you will look as well as some other Fellows MULLEN, BLUETT & CO. 101 N. Spring St. 201-203-205-207-209 W. First Street pointed William T. .later of Santa Cruz as lieutenant-governor created surprise In some quarters, but those who bad been looking ttie matter up were not sur prised. They knew that Govenror Budd had been asserting lor some time that in the event of a vacancy he would, under the authority given him by the consti tution, appoint the successor of Mr. Mil lard. The great majority of attorneys still assert tbat lion. Thomas Flint now be comes lieutenant-governor by vi lllie ol his position as president of the senate. Senator Flint is himself not worrying about tbe matter at all. To a represen tative of The Herald last evening ho stated : "Yes; I have heard that Governor lludd lias aptiionted Mr. .letei lieutenant governor. However, that is a matter that lam not considering now. 1 do not think it a proper theme for discussion at this juncture. There w'll be time enough alter Governor Millard is buried tn protect whatever rights 1 may have in tho matter. My friends will at the proper time see that this is done." Col. E. Ensign, secretary of the senate and a warm personal friend of President Flint, states that there is no question thai Mr. Flint is the legal successor of .Mr. Millard. Hut until the lieutenant governor is called upon to perform some official act Mr. Jeter may claim to be lieutenant-governor ami nobody can stop him. Hut the lirst time lie attempts to perform an act as lieutenant-governor, then an injunction can be seemed to pre vent him from acting.on the ground that he is not duly qualified ns lieutenant governor, in thi*. way Colonel FOnsign stines the matter could he brought before the court for decision. fj Hji, unless there should be an extra session convened by the governor, the lieutenant-soverhor will not be called on to perform any official act until the legis lature of 1896. In the meantime Gover nor Budd'a appointee, Colonel Ensign states, can call himself lieutenant-gover nor and he will ho unchallenged, for he will draw no salary and do no wora.
